2019 Genesis G70

The brand started in 2015, the brand has grown over the last 4 years and created a premium luxury brand that offers great product and refined service.

“They are writing a new page in the book of Genesis”.

Genesis has 3 design centers, (Germany, Korea, and IRVINE, CA). We are told an SUV is in the works. Digital design has expanded the possibility for the brand lineup.

Emotional, Athletic, Sexy and Safe – balance of muscles and sexiness.

The 2019 Genesis G70 offer 2 engines: 2.0L turbocharged – 252 hp. OR 3.3-liter – V-6, 365 hp., with an 8-speed automatic with paddle shifters. 2L turbo offers a 6-speed manual transmission option. For non-USA models a 2.2-liter turbodiesel goes to other markets. – Darn that would be fun.

Drive modes: ECO, smart, comfort, sport, custom. Drift and launch control can be engaged (shutting off ESC).
Torque vectoring can adjust the torque split to keep you on the road on tight corners.

The dynamic edition has better brakes for track use if you choose. Brembo brakes with performance pads and Michelin Pilot Sport S 225/40 ZR 19 tires.
